12-Year Old David Sheds Jersey After 4 Years

David Witthoft has taken the meaning of “fanatic” to another level when he refused to take off the Brett Favre football jersey he received for Christmas in 2003.  David is an avid fan of the Green Bay Packer quarterback even after the football player’s retirement in 2007.

His mother would wash the jersey every other day and mended the shirt when needed.  Finally, on on April 23, 2008, his 12th birthday, David decided to shed the poor shirt after wearing it for 1,581 days.  His father indicated that the young boy was starting to be conscious of his appearance and the shirt had barely come down to his beltline by that time.

And they say I am too lenient with my children . . .
